T-Mobile Shadow first impressions; HTC and Microsoft reveal a refreshing UI

After checking out the BlackBerry Curve for a couple weeks I scheduled a time on my calendar to visit T-Mobile and pick one up for myself. However, the sun came out before my appointment and revealed the T-Mobile Shadow so I now had a choice to make at the local T-Mobile store. I went on 31 October, the release day for the Shadow, and the T-Mobile store in Seattle was packed. I checked out both the brown and green Shadow, as well as the Curve again, and a few minutes later I walked out of the store with a green T-Mobile Shadow. I have 14 days to decide if I am going to stick with the Shadow or go back and get the Curve so if you have any thoughts on why one is better than the other, feel free to leave a comment. My thoughts, video, and photo gallery below are my first impressions after about 6 hours of using the Shadow. I plan to post a more detailed review prior to my 14-day trial period expiration.

Last Redshift redux (hopefully): Couldn't forget the hardware and use Amazon's EC2?

Last week, when I interviewed Sun's Peder Ulander (there's text, video, and audio -- take your pick) about the idea of redshift computing (a Sun theory that all the world's servers will eventually give way to just five or so massively scalable systems), he talked about how Sun's formula for being the muscle behind one or more of those systems wouldn't just be to have the best hardware in terms of scalability, performance, reliability, power consumption, etc.

Sunday funnies: Infinite Loop on HandBrake

You gotta love writing like this: "The future is indeed bright for those engaging in legitimate transference of DVDs to other video formats, as well as dirty, stinking, filthy, communist pirates stealing food from the mouths of the children of movie studio executives. The same sun shines on us all."

With a mixture of sadness, relief, and hope for the future, former Sun CEO Scott McNealy took the stage this morning at the final keynote address of JavaOne 2006.

Afterwards, James Gosling came up to to embarrass Scott with a video, show off some toys, and judge the finals for the slot car races. Then John Gage closed with a few inspiring words for the Java faithful.
